Once, Jimmy dreamt that he was sitting under a Tree in a landscape that was as big as the world, and there was no one else there, and it was still and quiet. And although there was a breeze, nothing at all seemed to move with it, because it seemed as though the breeze and the landscape were at different times and in different places, even though they were not. In that moment, Jimmy was truly happy and he didn’t want the dream to end.
When Jimmy and Caitlyn arrived at her father’s house, which was a long way away, Jimmy saw that Tree and he knew that he would never, ever leave this place.
